PROCLAMATION 6515—DEC. 16, 1992 107 STAT. 2591 Act authorizes the President to proclaim permanent modifications in column 1 rates of duty to restore the tariff treatment applicable under the former TSUS, upon a determination that appropriate trade concessions, including the correction of errors and oversights in foreign tariff schedules, have been obtained. 10. Accordingly, following negotiations, I have determined that appropriate trade concessions (specifically, a restoration by the European Economic Community ("EEC") of the duty rates on inedible mixtiu'es of animal and vegetable fats and oils that applied before the EEC's implementation of a Harmonized System-based tariff in 1988) have been obtained, and that it is necessary and appropriate to restore the tariff treatment applicable under the TSUS to jams of peaches, apricots, raspberries, or cherries, falling under Harmonized System subheading 2007.99. 11. Finally, in order to effect in the HTS certain conforming changes omitted in Proclamation 6282 of April 25, 1991, Proclamation 6343 of September 28, 1991, Proclamation 6446 of June 15, 1992, and Proclamation 6455 of July 2, 1992,1 have determined that it is necessary and appropriate to modify the HTS. 12. Section 604 of the Trade Act of 1974 ("Trade Act") (19 U.S.C. 2483) authorizes the President to embody in the HTS the substance of the provisions of that Act, and of other Acts affecting import treatment, and actions thereimder, including removal, modification, continuance, or imposition of any rate of duty or other import restriction. Section 1206(c) of the 1988 Act (19 U.S.C. 3006(c)) provides that any modifications proclaimed by the President under section 1206(a) of that Act may not take effect before the 15th day after the date on which the text of ihe proclamation is published in the Federal Register. NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE BUSH, President of the United States of America, acting under the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including but not limited to sections 1102 and 1206 of the 1988 Act, section 312 of the 1990 Act, and section 604 of the Trade Act, do proclaim that: (1) The HTS is modified as set forth in Annex I to this proclamation.
